A PDF sewing pattern for a pair of bikini bottoms, swim and athletic shorts based on our women’s size chart. The Sue shorts are loose and flowy like a skirt, but with the convenience of shorts! They also feature an optional brief liner (with regular and retro leg lines) to keep you covered while swimming and other athletic endeavors. You can even make the liner as Bikini bottoms by themselves! With your choice of rises, inseam lengths and waistbands (including maternity!), Sue will be your new best summer friend!
